As many herbs, Dang Gui, has various names such as Chinese Angelica Root, Dang Gui, Tang Kuei, Tan Kue, and Dong Quai. The herb is a fine powder which is great for making capsules. To my surprise, the Dang Gui we sell is predominantly to horse owners. The horse owners put the powder in the trough, with the other food, and it is all eaten. The horses seem to really love the taste, as the horse owners tell me there is never any left in the bottom. . . they lick it all up. From the information that the horse owners tell me, they give it to the mares.
Proper Storage of Herbs
Bulk Herbs and spices should be stored in a glass jar with a tight rubber seal and kept somewhere cool. The jar should be dark in color to avoid sunlight degrading the herb or spice. If a dark color jar is not available simple slip a brown paper bag over the glass jar. On the brown bag adhere a label with the following information: Name of Bulk Herb, Tea, or Spice.
When and where the bulk spice, or tea was purchased. Brewing time of bulk herb or tea. What the tea, spice, or bulk herb is used for. The reason why you may find it useful to put what the herb is for on the container, is when you don't feel good all the information is there available to you. It is so much easier to have the function of the herb on the container, and ready for use. Lastly avoid keeping the herbs in the refrigerator where condensation can take place or near heat sources like ovens, dishwashers, or stoves.

About Herbal Remedies and Alternative Medicine
